These images were made along a section of the River Trent between the villages of East Bridgford and Kneeton. It is south of Newark and is not part of the tidal range. The journey takes us along Oldhill Lane, along what would appear to be an ancient track overlooking the Trent and a significant amount of landscape further north. During the winter months this area will take the full force of the cold North Easterly winds. Along the lane, there are a number of marker trees, Oak and Horse Chestnut amongst others but further towards Kneeton on the northern edge, most of the trees are Ash, some of significant age. Adjacent to the actual 'Old Hill', the highest point, these Ash trees are diseased and will die. Part of this sequence of images shows them dying yet still dancing in the wind, the same wind that has carried the disease to each neighbour. A dance of death and their future looks particularly bleak but genetic investigators are reporting positive results from early experimentation in the production of dieback resistant or even immune trees.
The route takes us to Watsons Piece which would appear to be land reclaimed from the Trent, where sheep now graze the pasture.
